Billions of people around the world have been ordered to stay at home in order to curb the spread of the Covid-19.
Nevertheless, a woman from Charlotte, North Carolina, was infected with deadly virus even staying at home. She didn’t leave her house for more than three weeks.
“I’m absolutely terrified,” Rachel Brummert said. “This is the sickest I’ve ever been and it’s the most scared I’ve ever been. From what I’m hearing about ventilators, it’s scary stuff. I’m really hoping I can wait this out at home. “
Brummert is at a higher risk for infecting Covid-19 due to her autoimmune disorder. Therefore she listened to the health experts and stay at home. She hasn’t left her house once after a trip to the pharmacy which is more than three weeks ago.
“I really thought I was doing everything right,” she said.
Besides the pharmacist and her husband, who is temporarily living in a separate room, the only person that Brummert had come in contact is a woman volunteered to drop off groceries at her doorstep. Brummert said the woman later tested positive for Covid-19.
“I barely had any contact,” she said. “I didn’t even touch her.”
Brummert mentioned that she didn’t even eat the take-out meal and she always wear gloves whenever she receives her mails. However while bringing the packages into her house, she didn’t think to wear gloves and wipe down the groceries.
She had suffered from a fever, a cough, loss of smell, fatigue, headaches and breathing difficulties which are the symptoms associated with Covid-19.
“I’ve never had anything like this before,” she said. “I’ve had the flu. This is not the flu. It’s a whole nother monster.”
